If you enjoy Thinking through Drawing please consider helping us (123 Draw) to keep it going with a modest donation. We don't want to exclude anyone who may not be able to pay from the Reading Groups and other events we run, but with increasing global interest in our activities admin is becoming very time consuming and more costly. We are independent and unfunded, and now rely on selling tickets to our educational events, and on your subscriptions and donations.
